Real Estate (REIT) Modeling

This course is designed to teach REIT modeling to students and professionals pursuing a career in finance, with a specific focus on analyzing REITs. First, we will learn about the REIT industry’s unique drivers and challenges. We will then build REIT financial and valuation models from scratch, using a step-by-step approach for an actual company, BRE Properties. Along the way, we will cover modeling best practices for same store properties, acquisitions, developments, and dispositions. In addition, we will model and deconstruct critical REIT profit metrics like FFO, AFFO, and CAD. The second part of the course will involve valuation modeling, with a focus on the Net Asset Value (NAV) approach.
